This book is amazing. It a one of a kind study guide that has really helped me. This book is not just one big book filled with reading material, like a study guide you would use or see in school. It is filled with questions that might be asked on your certification exam and includes an answer key at the end of every section you complete with fully detailed answers to why that answer is correct.

The following subjects include:

Blood Banking : blood products, blood group systems, physiology and pathophysiology, serology,and transfusions. Chemistry : carbohydrates, acid-base balance, electrolytes, proteins and other nitrogen-containing compounds, heme derivatives, enzymes, lipids and lipoproteins, endocrinology and tumor markers, TDM and toxicology, quality assessment, laboratory mathematics,and instrumentation. Hematology: erythrocytes-pathology, erythrocytes-disease states, erythrocytes-laboratory determinations, leukocytes-physiology, leukocytes-disease states, leukocytes-laboratory determinations, platelets-physiology, platelets-disease states, platelets-laboratory operations, hemostasis,and hematology laboratory operations. Immunology: autoantibody evaluation, infectious disease serology, protein analysis,and cellular immunity and histocompatibility techniques. Microbiology: preanalytical and susceptibility testing, aerobic gram-positive cocci, gram-negative bacilli, aerobic gram-negative cocci, aerobic or facultative gram-positive bacilli, anaerobes, fungi, mycobacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, and parasites.

I purchased this book to help me study for certification in microbiology. I found that it is just a bunch of practice questions. The practice questions are great as a way to see what the test will be like, but not good for finding all the info needed to study. I recently purchased Microcards: Review Cards for Medical Students and Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple. Both are great tools for studying.

Don't bother buying this book... It doesnt help you study, but maybe just helps to practice for the exam. If you are looking to buy a book with material to study for the MLT or MLS BOC, I would go with "Clinical Laboratory Science Review: A Bottom Line Approach" by Patsy Jarreau
Good luck to all !!

This book, Polanski cards, and wordsology are the sole reasons I passed both the ASCP and AAB. I took the ASCP the first time and didn't use this book like I was told to and failed by 20 points. After I went through this book and took the test again I passed it by 100 points. Definitely worth it.

I LOVE THIS STUDY GUIDE!!!! THE QUESTIONS ARE EXTENSIVE AND COVER A THRU Z. THE ANSWERS ARE INFORMATIVE AND NOT BORING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS STUDY GUIDE TO ANYONE PREPARING TO TAKE A MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY TEST (WHETHER IT IS FOR A STATE LICENSURE TEST OR ASCP, ETC,,.

I am currently studying for my CLS examination and reading through this book. I feel as if this book was not proof read at all. There are misspellings, missing words, missing graphs/tables and answers in the back that do not correlate with the question it is supposed to accompany.

I found this book to be quite helpful in preparing for the ASCP MT certification exam. The questions are similar (in terms of level of difficulty) to those on the actual exam. However, while most sections gave good explanations for the correct answers, others did not and referred you to a textbook. Too bad if you don't have the book! Overall though, a good buy! I would recommend.

I do not believe it helped at all. Studied BOC for the first MLT Test and failed. Studied just the Lab CE and passed the 2nd time. Should have listened to my class mates who advised against getting it. Some may want to get it for reference or the MT test but do not waste money for the MLT exam
